Chasing waterfalls is one of the best things to do in Bali other than beach hopping. There are so many different waterfalls and natural attractions on the island that you could honestly even spend your entire trip to Bali around them without feeling bored!

If you are a forest soul, while immersing yourself in the beauty of waterfalls, you can also consider staying at some of Bali’s unique rainforest hotels or go on a quiet yoga retreat.

So here is a round up of Bali’s best and hidden waterfalls, with difficulty ratings included – from beginner to expert! You’re welcome! 😉

And if you’re wondering… you can swim in some of these waterfalls too!

Whatever it is – it would be an adventure of a lifetime!

Waterfalls near Ubud

1. Of Canyons, Crystal Waters and Unique Waterfall – Goa Rang Reng Waterfall

If you are visiting Kanto Lampo Waterfall, consider adding this hidden gem to your list as it is just a short distance away! Just a little over 30 minutes out of Ubud, lies a hidden jewel – Goa Rang Reng Waterfall.

Goa Rang Reng has a unique waterfall form because the shape is sloping and wide as compared to the 90 degrees water drop of typical waterfalls. Not only that, not far from the fall, there’s also unique canyon landscapes framing the water stream.

Adding to its charm, there’s a natural pool at the top of the waterfall. The water then cascades majestically into the river. However, don’t underestimate this wide waterfall as the currents can be strong! Besides swimming, you can also jump down a cliff or just enjoy the swing by the waterfall.

Cliff jumping is a common tourist activity here and it’s generally safe but do jump at your own discretion!

Do take a tour that includes trekking to the canyon and waterfall. It would take about 2 hours round trip and the community offers a local helper as a guide (note that the tour is “charged” by donation, so be aware of any scammers who quote you a fixed price!).

It is highly recommended to take the tour as you will be led to more “hidden” waterfalls in the area. The canyons you would see are majestic and definitely a one-of-a-kind feature!

Imagine being surrounded by lush vegetation and wildlife – what a great destination for your explorer soul!

TripCanvas Tip: The water here can be really strong and you won’t be able to visit during the wet season as the water levels might get dangerously high.

Goa Rang Reng Waterfall

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Entrance fee: By donation (typically Rp. 20,000 from international visitors) (Approximately USD $1.35)
Address: Jl. Goa Jl. Rang Reng, Bakbakan, Gianyar, Gianyar Regency, Bali 80515, Indonesia (Coordinates here)
Opening hours: Mon – Sun, 7.30am – 5pm

2. Enjoy swimming in a series of cascading mini waterfalls! – Sumampan Waterfall

Much more than just a waterfall, Sumampan Waterfall has three parts – there’s the incredibly tall surge of water, which flows into a series of pools that form a cascade of mini waterfalls, before finally reaching the natural pond you can swim in!

Sit underneath one of the many mini falls and get yourself a peaceful water massage while resting your eyes. If you look closely at the stones, you’ll find some gorgeous engravings done by the locals.

However, we’ve heard that the current can be very strong, so be extra careful.

3. Introducing a hidden gem that’s going to blow your mind! – Bandung Waterfall

While there are plenty of undiscovered waterfalls in Bali, many are not equipped with the necessary safety features, amenities and services that a lot of the well-known ones do. While some people may enjoy these hidden gems, it can be quite dangerous if you are not used to trekking to waterfalls.

Photo Via Dianavitria, Mjmarceanno

However, Bandung Waterfall is an exception.

The locals around Bandung Waterfall have done a fantastic job at keeping the surroundings clean. Photo spots, jump spots, and dangerous spots are all marked clearly so you can enjoy this gorgeous waterfall with an ease of mind!

Photo Via They_kriz, Ystraaa__

(Bandung Waterfall is actually the beautiful result of a dam built on top of an amazing gorge. So if you are chasing “natural” waterfalls, this might be a disappointment for you.)

Hidden between canyons, discovering this waterfall is an adventure in itself, and being in between two towering cliffs while you swim makes you feel you are in a more secluded place than you already are.

The best way to enjoy it is to go river tubing through its rushing waters!

4. The twin waterfall sweetheart of Bali – Tibumana Waterfall

Once an isolated spot, the Tibumana waterfall is finally getting the hype it so rightly deserves.

Locals believe that the entrance is the secret gateway to Raja Besakih’s temple – one of the Balinese Hindu Gods.

At a 20-metre height of each waterfall, the surrounding area boasts a shallow clear pool guarded by large rocks and moss green cliffs. There is still an ongoing effort by the locals to develop this site as it holds enormous tourist potential.

Our last advice before you head out is – get a waterproof camera (or at least a waterproof casing) as you’ll definitely be thirsting for gorgeous photos here.

With a nearby temple and bathing spot, it’s no surprise that Tegenungan is popular among locals looking for a quick escape from the city rush!

You would need to go down about 150 steps of stairs to get to the waterfall. The journey up can be challenging too.

6. This could well be part of a fairy-tale! – Campuhan Antapan Waterfall

A small path takes you from the entrance to this calm and serene waterfall within seconds. While not the biggest waterfall in Bali, it has its own charm! With its pool blocked off from the river beside it, you can easily soak in the water without worrying you’ll be washed away by the river.

7. Rugged nature paired with modern amenities and a stunning waterfall – Leke Leke Waterfall

At Leke Leke Waterfall, a gorgeous singular cascade miraculously falls between the meeting of two cliff faces, appearing as though it’s framing the entrance to a secret cave!

As its entrance and surrounding amenities are well maintained, you get to enjoy the benefits of a tourist attraction with a lot less people. If you head there early in the morning (highly recommended), you might even be lucky enough to sit and enjoy this magnificent beast all to yourself for a while!

Photo Via Prorvina, Travel.vips_

Enjoying the cool waters – surrounding yourself with the peaceful sounds of the forest is the perfect way to start your morning, no? You can also go on the swings near the entrance if you want a bit of an adrenaline rush, or sit in one of their Instagrammable bird nests!

Listen and watch thousands of litres of water cascading down 50 metres into a beautiful pool.

Sounds gorgeous? Getting there is a real challenge, though – situated at the bottom of a gorge, you must descend 509 steps to reach the falls.


But you’ll be greeted with a magnificent view of the waterfalls and rice paddies all around.

And why not refresh yourself at one of nature’s most refreshing natural pools?

At Gitgit Waterfall, the water is clean, fresh and cool at 22°C. One of Bali’s tallest waterfalls with a height of nearly 58 metres and located in the middle of a forest, Gitgit Waterfall is where you can indulge in a refreshing bath surrounded by lush rainforest all around.

Here, you’ll be lulled by the soothing sounds of the water and the song of the birds… It’s a hidden paradise where you can truly listen to your heart and mind!

Photo Via Chosenexperiences, Ishasapru

For the adrenaline junkies, you will love canyoning. Ride through natural slides, go cliff-jumping, hiking, rappelling and even climb down the waterfall. Or how about swinging right towards the waterfall and leaping straight into the water?

You’ll have the time of your lives!

TripCanvas Tip: You might encounter some locals offering their service to guide you around the waterfall area that costs Rp. 150,000 per person. However, this is not compulsory. You can just follow the path towards the waterfall without the guide and just pay the entrance fee of Rp. 20,000.

10. Ever dreamed of sliding down a waterfall? Twin falls – Aling-Aling Waterfall

The Aling-Aling Waterfall is just 11km from the city of Singaraja, around 12 km from Lovina.


And it’s unique for a very special reason – the 35-metre tall Aling-Aling Waterfall is split at the top, leaving two streams that fall at completely different speeds.

Have you ever seen anything like it before?

But don’t believe the pictures alone. Take the long, steep walk down to the falls yourself, and admire it up close!

The water flowing down has slowly created a natural water slide, so if you’ve ever thought how awesome it would be to slide down a waterfall, you can do so here.

Aling-Aling Waterfall

11. The overshadowed hidden gem – Jembong Waterfall

Locally, Jembong Waterfall is known as one of the best waterfalls in Bali. But it is in fact rarely visited due to its proximity to the famous Gitgit falls.


And that may actually be a blessing in disguise – Jembong offers stunning unspoiled beauty.

Although the falls isn’t very high, its gentle slope and regular water flow makes it ideal for soaking in while enjoying the beautiful green jungle surroundings. People also come here for spiritual healing.

12. Discover a hidden waterfall among the cliffs and rocks at Desa Musi, Gerokgak

There, you’ll discover its secret – a cliff area where a waterfall crashes powerfully into a natural pool.

As this waterfall is very hidden, the best way to reach this place is to ask the local villagers for directions when you reach Musi Village. It’s a great opportunity to interact with the locals too!

At sunset, you can take a walk in the village, hunt for the scattered Hindu temples and observe the simple daily life of the villagers.

Coordinates of the waterfall are estimated to be near here. Do check with the locals for directions when you reach Musi Village.

13. Plunge in a hidden endless stream of beauty – Bhuana Sari Waterfall

This is by far one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bali – unknown to many, untouched and thus spectacular! So why not head up north and check out this lesser-known gem?
Located in a secluded area 2.5 hours’ drive from Denpasar, this waterfall flies under the radar. However, it is not a force to be reckoned with as its beauty is second to none.

Photo Via Bagusgibran_

After trekking for 20 minutes, you get to relish a picturesque gush of water pouring down. Bhuana Sari is actually the second set of the Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall; both offer magical experiences!

Photo Via Mdbakta_kardana

Watch it burst out of the rocks and cascade soothingly into a creek. Awaken all of your senses and listen to the soothing flow of water and birds chirping in the background…

Experience Mother Nature at her finest; jump in the shallow natural pool to cool off after getting there or simply enjoy the droplets from above a rock!

The waterfall is considered as a hidden oasis and only real adventurers tread this deep to explore an untouched gem!

P.S. There are 2 other waterfalls within a 20-minute trek (that can be steep at some parts). So there are 4 falls altogether!

Difficulty level: Intermediate

14. The lesser known twin beauty – Banyumala Twin Waterfall

Located in Wanagiri district near Lake Buyan, this is not an easy waterfall to find, but it will be well worth your effort to get there.

The sight of this twin beauty can be overwhelming, as you take in the gush of uninterrupted water pouring down against the steep cascading rocks.

Absorb the thunderous sounds among the rich greenery, trees and ravine around you while taking a cool dip in its freshwater.

All you need to do? Simply aim with your waterproof camera – focus on framing both twins of Banyumala in your shot for the most magnificent results to bring home.

15. Adventure to seven falls – Sekumpul Waterfall

If you are really adventurous, here’s your chance at trying out another challenge: Sekumpul Waterfall.

Getting to the waterfall is quite tedious – you need to walk down many slippery steps and across a river to see the falls up close. It’s about 400 steps and a short trek to the majestic falls.

What’s interesting about Sekumpul Waterfall is that there are seven majestic falls (“sekumpul” means “group” in Indonesian)! The tallest is more than 50 metres high.

And just a trek away, you will be able to find Lemukih Waterslide. It is essentially a small waterfall where you can slide down with a tire – a fun stop to complete your adventure!

TripCanvas Tip: At the entrance, there will be a group of people beside the booth asking you to take their guided tour for Rp. 200,000 or more, and they will claim that it’s compulsory. Do NOT fall for this scam. The route leading into the Sekumpul waterfall is quite well maintained and you can walk by yourself. Although there are 2-3 junctions, you can ask the locals for directions. Trust us, you won’t get lost in there.

Yes, you’ve read this right – it’s a two-for-one deal on waterfalls in Munduk!

A short 300-metre walk from the main road will bring you to an incredible sight, with roaring water gushing down continuously that you’ll forget about all your worries in front of Munduk Waterfall. It is also known as Red Coral Waterfall.

Spend some time relaxing on some rocks, or brave the ice-cold waters and take a quick shower (with swimmers on, please!).

Once you’ve had your fill of Munduk waterfall, start your trek north to yet another beautiful water feature – Melanting Waterfalls. Still a very well kept secret, most people have yet to venture to this beauty, and in all likelihood, you’ll be staring up at the mist in solitude. We highly suggest doing these two waterfalls without a tour, as you’ll be able to spend as much time as you want there and come as early as you want.

17. Why have one waterfall when you can see three at the same time? – Pucak Manik Waterfall

Coffee, tangerine and clove plantations are what surround you in the highlands of North Bali and you should absolutely not miss visiting the area. While you’re at it, head over to this magnificent waterfall up in Buleleng.  Yes, there is more to Wanagiri than its Instagram-worthy swing!

The trek down to the waterfall will have your inner explorer thirst for more adventures like this one in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by lush greenery! But rest assured, the trail is an easy one.

Managed by the Wanagiri Tourism Awareness Group (Darwis), the natural attraction has been developed to be accessible to all. Once there, you will simply need to cross a small bridge and walk on a slightly uphill path for about a hundred metres.

This natural gem comprises three waterfalls. While the smallest flow of water is located on the extreme left, you will also find two other streams gushing out in the middle and to the right… We let the pictures speak for how magical they look!

The entrance fee is a little pricey compared to neighbouring falls, but this is a scenic experience like no other.

Well, see it for yourself and head over to this waterfall in Singaraja City; only 15 minutes from Munduk Waterfall and 70 kilometres from Denpasar (approximately 1 hour 40 minutes’ drive).

Go on a little adventure through the valley to discover this hidden waterfall. The cool mountain air and spectacular scenery makes the walk enjoyable.

Once you’re there, check out the little bamboo stall and settle down for a cup of coffee. Not to rave about it but the coffee there is said to be surprisingly good! Probably because it is freshly brewed from the locals’ own plantations nearby!

The waterfall is set on a private plot of land so you can expect better cleanliness too.

About an hour drive from Ubud, Goa Giri Campuhan offers a mini-adventure as you would need to walk through a stretch of paddy fields (15-minute walk) and two “mini” cave tunnels (with stairs) to get there. The journey is a treat in itself!

22. Step down into the rarified beauty of Tukad Cepung Waterfall

You must have heard all about Bali’s majestic waterfalls. Unknown to most people and only recently discovered by travellers, Tukad Cepung Waterfall stands almost virgin and unexplored.

Photo via jordhammond

This is as close to nature as you can get! You will have to climb a flight of steps to get to this beauty, so gear up accordingly.

Very importantly, do be gentle with and respectful of the natural space around Tukad Cepung as locals strive to maintain the area. Once you walk down the steps, remember to look up – cliffs encircle your surroundings with the waterfall flowing from a river above.

Photo via Love_wish_believe

Some of us have travelled to Tukad Cepung, and here’s some advice if you intend to head there.

Expect to wait in line for at least 30-minutes to an hour for a picture there. So go earlier in the day instead so you don’t have to queue up for long. In between 10am to 12pm is the prime hour for the sun shining through the boulders so you might want to avoid these busy hours. Catch the morning rays from 8am-9am for your pictures instead!

Be very careful though, it’s important to be aware of the river water levels before you head for the falls. Rapid flooding may occur during raining periods so do check ahead before descending the stairs!

Away from the overcrowded tourist centres of Kuta and Ubud, there is a small village called Les, wherein lies a beautiful waterfall.


This beauty, Yeh Mampeh Waterfall (which means ‘flying water’ in Balinese), is a virtually untouched one nestled in serene surroundings, and it is also one of Bali’s tallest waterfalls.

You can hike down the falls and visit the nearby caves, or just simply bathe under the gentle flow of the water.

Waterfalls in Nusa Penida

24. Infinity pool with unrivaled ocean views – Peguyangan Waterfall, Nusa Penida

Peguyangan Waterfall on Nusa Penida isn’t a towering vertical torrent of water like the jungle falls in central Bali.

Instead, it’s a series of short, cascading spring fountains that eventually make their way over a steep ravine and into the sea.

Away from the ravine, the cascades make a great place for all to enjoy a ‘natural spa’, and a massage from the fast flowing waters as they burble over the shallow ledges and pools.

Reaching the springs involves a descent down narrow stairs against the wall of the ravine. After some 460 steps, the gorgeous sight of the cascades is both exhilarating and relieving.

When To See Waterfalls in Bali

The best time to visit the waterfalls in Bali is towards the end of the rainy season or shortly after, when the water flow is still abundant but the rain has subsided.

January to March is Bali’s rainy season – this is when the waterfalls are powerful and strong. Going right after heavy rain may result in having to walk in muddy water – so it’s not ideal for photos.

August to October is Bali’s driest season. The waterfalls are still visible but the currents would be smaller than usual. While they rarely dry up completely, they may not be as spectacular. So the end of the dry season might not be the ideal time to visit as well.

So from the end of March to early April is the sweet spot for you to embark on your adventure to see waterfalls in  Bali!

TripCanvas Tip: You can also check recent photos on Google Maps or Instagram for current conditions before your trip!
